THE GREATEST THREAT TO DEMOCRACY . . . IS FREE PEOPLE
As I have said before . . . it isn’t Obama’s FAULT that America and the world are on the edge of collapse, since the ONLY way a NOBODY like Obama could ever get elected to the highest government office on the planet was by the people.
SO . . . ALL THE MISERY BEING FELT TODAY IS THE FAULT OF FREE PEOPLE.
I didn’t just blame FREE people for the misery of the world without actually meaning it, since it wasn’t a casual statement. And I don’t say the following without meaning it 100%:
MOST PEOPLE DO NOT DESERVE THE GRACE AND GIFT OF FREEDOM.
For everything we receive in this world, there is a price. Some of us pay a much higher price than others, but essentially, in one way or another, in varying degrees, we all pay a price.
AND THAT PRICE INCLUDES THE COST OF FREEDOM.
PUTIN COULD NOT HAVE JUST WALTZED INTO UKRAINE and seized Crimea if the FREE people of the United States never voted for a DUFUS like Obama. He wouldn’t have dared to.
But, only because Americans chose to elect a SELF-HATING American, who promised to disassemble American EXCEPTIONALISM, did Putin have the psychological wherewithal to do what he did in Ukraine, which I think is only the beginning of global challenges, in the knowledge that the absolute value of FREEDOM is on the wane in America.
BUT IT GOES BACK FURTHER THAN JUST THE ELECTION OF 2008:
For years, FREE American people have voted for their representatives from Town and City Councilors, to Mayors, to Members of the House and the Senate . . . ALL THE WAY UP TO THE PRESIDENT – without knowing or understanding who they were REALLY voting for, and what they REALLY stood for.
To some extent . . . THE SAME CAN BE SAID FOR CANADA AND OTHER “FREE” SOCIETIES.
But . . . ONLY America (amongst all the nations of the world) has actually built into its Constitution all of those safeguards, checks and balances necessary to maintain the FREEDOM of the people.
But what good is there of having the mechanism in place to protect FREEDOM, if most of the people are too stupid to see that their FREEDOM is disappearing, and the people they elect are the one’s responsible for FREEDOM’S demise?
And even for those FEW who are intelligent enough to see that the American Dream is crashing on the rocks of apathy and ignorance . . . what’s the point of having the tools to set what is wrong right . . . when the courage to do so does not exist?
PERHAPS I’M NOT YOUR TYPICAL CANADIAN:
By and large Canadians are LEFTISTS . . . ANNE AND I ARE ON THE RIGHT.
Very few of us own guns . . . and for the few like us who do, the restrictions of ownership are suffocating. But we persevere nonetheless. Canadians LOVE our social services. We rarely yell at our representatives, or even at the representatives of our representatives.
We really are too polite . . .
AND WE PLACE AN INORDINATE AMOUNT OF DUMB TRUST IN OUR BUREAUCRACY.
And we have no real mechanism built into our system of RIGHTS and FREEDOMS to protect the essence of individual LIBERTY. So . . . knowing all of this, we Canadians can sort of be forgiven for allowing our elected and non-elected masters to have their way with us, since that has always been a part of our culture.
BUT YOU AMERICANS BUILT A SOCIETY BASED EXCLUSIVELY ON FREEDOM.
SO WHAT’S YOUR EXCUSE?
There is no excuse or forgiveness for allowing your country and inherent FREEDOMS to be highjacked by the LEFT.
HERE’S A REALLY GOOD PERSPECTIVE ON WHAT’S HAPPENING IN AMERICA:
Just as the vast majority of Americans are PISSED at Russia and furious with Putin for treating Obama as if he was indeed a NOBODY . . . ISN’T THAT THE WAY OBAMA TREATS BOEHNER AND THE REPUBLICANS?
And just like Obama is upset at how Putin has ridden roughshod on the FREEDOMS of the Ukrainians and their RIGHTS . . . ISN’T THAT WHAT OBAMA HAS BEEN DOING TO THE CONSTITUTIONAL FREEDOMS OF AMERICANS?
When you give STUPID, ignorant, lazy and apathetic people the RIGHT to pick and choose who amongst them they should trust with their FREEDOMS, you’ve just given the inmates in the asylum the right to define who they want YOU to be.
WHO’S RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MESS AROUND THE WORLD?
TO ALL THE AMERICANS WHO VOTED FOR OBAMA . . . and before Obama, they who allowed previous Presidents and politicians from the highest to the lowest level of office to play fast and loose with the people’s RIGHTS – YOU’RE RESPONSIBLE.
J’accuse was the headline written by Emile Zola on January 13, 1898, published on the Front Page of a French News Paper, outlining his absolute disdain for the French Military, Government and Judiciary, which convicted Alfred Dreyfus, a Jewish Military Captain of treason during the Franco-Prussian War of 1894, on trumped-up charges . . . ONLY because he was Jewish in anti-Semitic France.
Emile Zola, who was not Jewish, was subsequently charged and convicted of Libel for his very public assertion that the French HIERARCHY was corrupt and incorrigible, which was a jailable offence for libeling France, for which he fled to England to avoid prison.
The end of this tale . . . is that Zola was proven to be right, and Dreyfus, who was incarcerated in the HELL-HOLE known as Devil’s Island in French Guyana, was finally exonerated and given back his Military Commission, promoted to the rank of Major, and made a Knight of the Legion of Honour.
I TELL YOU THIS STORY . . . because it took the voice of just one brave man (Emile Zola), who for no other reason other than to stand very tall, showing true courage to expose very powerful AGENCIES; including the French Military, the Courts and the Government itself . . . TO BRING ALL OF THEM TO THEIR KNEES.
Emile Zola, perhaps more than anyone . . . exemplified the courage it takes to stand up UNCONDITIONALLY in the fight for TRUTH and FREEDOM.
In the final analysis, there are many people in our North American societies, and in Europe, and other places who are in their very own way epitomizing Emile Zola, who are themselves swimming against the powerful current of an IGNORANT and PATHETIC public.
To me . . . J’ACCUSE is the personification of what the BATTLE CRY must be for all people who relish FREEDOM above and beyond everything else, since, without FREEDOM . . . who and what are we?
I think that many people in the United States . . . and perhaps even in my own country of Canada, are finally beginning to understand, even if it is just a blush of understanding, that FREEDOM is not FREE, and there is a price to be paid for political ignorance and apathy.
WHETHER WE LIKE IT OR NOT . . . FREEDOM COMES WITH A PRICE:
And no one can make us FREE . . . or guarantee us our FREEDOM but ourselves.
I guess the question should be . . . Amongst us, how many are willing to yell-out J’ACCUSE?
